In patients undergoing PCI with normal (≤99th percentile URL) baseline cTn concentrations, elevations of cTn >5× 99th percentile URL occurring within 48 h of the procedure—plus either (i) evidence of prolonged ischaemia (≥20 min) as demonstrated by prolonged chest pain, or (ii) ischaemic ST changes or new pathological Q waves, or (iii) angiographic evidence of a flow limiting complication, such as of loss of patency of a side branch, persistent slow-flow or no-reflow, embolization, or (iv) imaging evidence of new loss of viable myocardium or new regional wall motion abnormality—is defined as PCI-related MI (type 4a). A Q wave <0.03 sec and <25% of the R wave amplitude in lead III is normal if the frontal QRS axis is between −30° and 0°. As in cardiomyopathy, Q waves may also occur due to myocardial fibrosis in the absence of CAD. . . . Third universal definition of myocardial infarction. The aging heart and post-infarction left ventricular remodeling. Although elevations of these biomarkers in the blood reflect injury leading to necrosis of myocardial cells, they do not indicate the underlying mechanism.5 Various possibilities have been suggested for release of structural proteins from the myocardium, including normal turnover of myocardial cells, apoptosis, cellular release of troponin degradation products, increased cellular wall permeability, formation and release of membranous blebs, and myocyte necrosis.6 Regardless of the pathobiology, myocardial necrosis due to myocardial ischaemia is designated as MI. . . To be effective and to avoid bias, this type of assessment will need to develop a paradigm to harmonize the different cTn assay results across sites. author = "Kristian Thygesen and Alpert, {Joseph S.} and Jaffe, {Allan S.} and Simoons, {Maarten L.} and Chaitman, {Bernard R.} and White, {Harvey D.} and Katus, {Hugo A.} As for PCI, the existing principles from the universal definition of MI should be applied for the definition of MI >48 h after surgery. . . .

In patients with right bundle branch block (RBBB), ST-T abnormalities in leads V1–V3 are common, making it difficult to assess the presence of ischaemia in these leads: however, when new ST elevation or Q waves are found, myocardial ischaemia or infarction should be considered. . 2012; 60(16):1581-98 (ISSN: 1558-3597). ECG abnormalities that mimic myocardial ischaemia or MI are presented in Table 5. . In this setting, it is important to distinguish acute causes of cTn elevation, which require a rise and/or fall of cTn values, from chronic elevations that tend not to change acutely.

It is also of value in detecting myocardial disease states that can mimic MI, such as myocarditis.61. The Third Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction has defined six Types of MI. . This has been demonstrated in clinical studies employing CKMB, where elevations 5, 10 and 20 times the URL after CABG were associated with worsened prognosis; similarly, impaired outcome has been reported when cTn values were elevated to the highest quartile or quintile of the measurements.79–83. . and Clemmensen, {Peter M.} and Per Johanson and Hanoch Hod and Richard Underwood and Bax, {Jeroen J.} Elevations of cTn values are common in patients in the intensive care unit and are associated with adverse prognosis, regardless of the underlying disease state.92,93 Some elevations may reflect MI type 2 due to underlying CAD and increased myocardial oxygen demand.94 Other patients may have elevated values of cardiac biomarkers, due to myocardial injury with necrosis induced by catecholamine or direct toxic effect from circulating toxins. . For example, ≥0.2 mV of ST elevation in lead V2, and ≥0.1 mV in lead V1, would meet the criteria of two abnormal contiguous leads in a man >40 years old. . }, author={K. Thygesen and J. Alpert and A.

Eur Heart J. . The criteria for a procedural MI have, to some extent, remained unchanged from the third Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction. . . . . Diagnosis of AMI was based on the Third Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction published in 2012 [6]. . Asymptomatic patients who develop new pathologic Q wave criteria for MI detected during routine ECG follow-up, or reveal evidence of MI by cardiac imaging, that cannot be directly attributed to a coronary revascularization procedure, should be termed ‘si lent MI.’48–51 In studies, silent Q wave MI accounted for 9–37% of all non-fatal MI events and were associated with a significantly increased mortality risk.48,49 Improper lead placement or QRS confounders may result in what appear to be new Q waves or QS complexes, as compared to a prior tracing.

MI may occur with atypical symptoms—such as palpitations or cardiac arrest—or even without symptoms; for example in women, the elderly, diabetics, or post-operative and critically ill patients.2 Careful evaluation of these patients is advised, especially when there is a rising and/or falling pattern of cardiac biomarkers. . . . . However, to ensure openness, their relationships with industry, government and private health providers are published online as a Data Supplement. These individuals may die before blood samples for biomarkers can be obtained, or before elevated cardiac biomarkers can be identified. Pre-excitation, obstructive, dilated or stress cardiomyopathy, cardiac amyloidosis, LBBB, left anterior hemiblock, LVH, right ventricular hypertrophy, myocarditis, acute cor pulmonale, or hyperkalaemia may be associated with Q waves or QS complexes in the absence of MI. It is recognized that the complexity of clinical circumstances may sometimes render it difficult to determine where individual cases may lie within the ovals of Figure 1. . Depending on the assay used, detectable-to-clearly elevated cTn values, indicative of myocardial injury with necrosis, may be seen in patients with HF syndrome.96 Using high-sensitivity cTn assays, measurable cTn concentrations may be present in nearly all patients with HF, with a significant percentage exceeding the 99th percentile URL, particularly in those with more severe HF syndrome, such as in acutely decompensated HF.97, Whilst MI type 1 is an important cause of acutely decompensated HF—and should always be considered in the context of an acute presentation—elevated cTn values alone, in a patient with HF syndrome, do not establish the diagnosis of MI type 1 and may, indeed, be seen in those with non-ischaemic HF. . Additionally, the management of patients with MI has significantly improved, resulting in less myocardial injury and necrosis, in spite of a similar clinical presentation. The strength of echocardiography is the assessment of cardiac structure and function, in particular myocardial thickness, thickening and motion. .

The current (fourth) Universal Definition of MI Expert Consensus Document updates the definition of MI to accommodate the increased use of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn). 12, 66, 67 These criteria are therefore retained because of a lack of new scientific evidence that identifies superior criteria for defining this MI … . . Abnormal regional myocardial motion and thickening may be caused by acute MI or by one or more of several other conditions, including prior MI, acute ischaemia, stunning or hibernation. . Therefore, biomarkers cannot stand alone in diagnosing MI in this setting. .

If the cTn concentration is elevated, but stable or decreasing at the time of suspected reinfarction, the diagnosis of reinfarction requires a 20% or greater increase of the cTn value in the second sample. Consistency among investigators and regulatory authorities, with regard to the definition of MI used as an endpoint in clinical investigations, is of substantial value. . Positron emission tomography (PET) and X-ray computed tomography (CT) are less common.52 There is considerable overlap in their capabilities and each of the techniques can, to a greater or lesser extent, assess myocardial viability, perfusion, and function. . . . 2012 Oct 16;60(16):1581-98. doi: 10.1016/j.jacc.2012.08.001. .  |  .
